Church Trains Pastor for Ministry to Restricted Minority

[184] prayers in [12] nations have been posted for Training for Pastors.

An underground church in China has developed a discipleship relationship with a family from a highly restricted people group in a sensitive location. This family is part of a small fellowship of Christians that has suffered rejection and persecution within their community. As leaders of the church train the father to evangelize and pastor his people, pray for the security of this family as well as receptive hearts among their community, which has not had a strong Christian witness before now. Pray for this pastor-in-training to grow in his faith and mature ability to lead the church according to the qualifications for elders in 1 Timothy 3.
